  1. E PA/NJ/DE Winter 2017-18 OBS Thread

    Yeah, we have a White Magnolia here that had just gotten to full bloom, I believe it was around the 15th of April. Last year wasn't a late freeze but a super warm February, which caused the same tree's buds to begin to open way early, followed by the mid-March cold with lows down to 14F here around the time of the snow-sleet brick. Most of the flowers that did eventually bloom had black tips from the freeze/burn. I'm hopeful that this year won't be a repeat, since this February likely won't be as warm as last year (number of above normal days). Meanwhile, 58F here at 9:45 pm!

    74F here currently - have to admit it feels nice outside, especially with the sun! I'm okay with the early warmth, but not too much for too long please (buds and all).

    Maybe get one of these and use it over the next week or so:

    2.5" here for final total, currently 32F. Season so far = 20.1", gets mby over last season's total, hoping for some action in March to get close to normal. Congrats again to the northern jackpotters - nice to see you all get dumped on. Now get shoveling! It came down hard enough to be able to create a junior snow pile, but I don't think we'll be shoveling 200 ft. of driveway into the pile, it's heavy duty! Hoping it stays cold overnight, could be some awesome pics in the morning. For what will probably be the only snowfall here this month, it certainly was interesting!

    Just measured 2" here, 32F. Still snowing moderately. Made it to the range of expectations, although I'll admit I was hoping that was conservative. Beautiful out there no matter what! Congrats to all those getting hit hard!

    It has been for about the last hour or so - gonna go measure shortly. Had to dry off from the kettle fire, lol. Had the tent up but snow was blowing in towards the end. Awesome though! Just dropped to 32F here a few minutes ago. Interestingly right after it picked up, there was rain mixing in pretty good, but only for about 5 or 10 minutes, then it went back to all snow and has been coming down between moderate and heavy since.

    1st few flakes here - woohoo! 37F. Closing up that hole looks like...

    I saw that, lol. Still lots of variation in modeled snowfall, tracking this event has been a little crazy. Should be interesting, hopefully in a good way for all of us. Going to blow some leaves in a few spots this afternoon, followed by a kettle fire. This will be a first, waiting down there by the fire for snow, checking radar. Lots of anticipation! Just starting to cloud up here now, temp at 41F, DP 25F. Hoping for cold air aloft to hang in there, not so worried about the surface. We've had a few events in the last few years here where we accumulated decent snow with the surface temp only getting down to 33F. Expectations here are 2" to 3", more would be a bonus. Could go either way, keeping fingers and toes crossed!

    Zits, crocuses, sprouts - I like all the metaphors for the pot hole activity. But yeah, lol.

    Hence the large grain of salt. Getting nam'd a day or 2 out is an old tradition that hasn't happened for a while, so it's a fun thing - kind of like an encouragement. How's the leg/foot?
  11. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    I take this with a large grain of ice-melt, but I believe we've been officially nam'd!

    18z GFS is better, 0z runs should be interesting. If they're somewhat consistent we might even see Ralph in here tomorrow morning!

    ^^^Same. and wouldn't that be sweet! Cautiously optimistic for this weekend, but need another two days to clarify.
  14. E PA/NJ/DE Winter 2017-18 OBS Thread

    62F here, the high for the day! This is from yesterday, the last of the snow pile (golf ball for size comparison). Perhaps until next year??? That doesn't sound right. This week will surely get the spring fever juices flowing, but I hope we get some snow in March (or this coming weekend, lol). I think 2012 was the last time there was no snow pile at all in March (here).

    I know he hasn't posted here for a while, so he probably won't see this, but I read in the Mt. Holly forecast discussion this evening that Mitchell Gaines is moving from Mt. Holly to Binghamton this week. Thanks Mitch, and good luck!
